You agree to pay all invoiced amounts either (1) immediately upon submission of an online order using a credit card; or (2) if you have submitted a purchase order to CTDI, payment is due in accordance with your contract with CTDI (or, if you are an authorized buyer for your company, your company’s contract with CTDI). CTDI may suspend or cancel performance of open orders if you fail to make the payment when due.

Order Cancellation. We make every effort to ship your order promptly. Any order submitted through the Online Store, if in stock, will not ship until after the necessary order verifications have been completed. Once the order has shipped it cannot be canceled.

Delivery. CTDI will use all commercially reasonable efforts to deliver Products in a timely manner. Unless otherwise agreed, CTDI shall arrange for shipment of the ordered Products to the ship-to address indicated on the order, through a common carrier designated by CTDI. You shall notify CTDI within seven (7) days of the invoice date if you believe any Product included on the order is missing, wrong, or damaged.

Title. Risk of loss or damage and title for Products will pass upon delivery to you or your designee. Where permitted by law, CTDI retains a security interest in Products sold until full payment is received.

Your purchase of Products and acknowledgement of these terms and conditions will be governed and interpreted under the laws of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the federal laws of the United States. To the extent permitted by law, the commonwealth and federal courts located in Pennsylvania will have exclusive jurisdiction for any disputes. You and CTDI agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the commonwealth and federal courts located within Chester County, Pennsylvania, and agree to wave any and all objections to the exercise of jurisdiction over the parties by those courts and to venue in those courts.

Global Trade Compliance. If you export, import, or otherwise transfer Products, you will be responsible for complying with applicable laws and regulations and for obtaining any required export or import authorizations. CTDI may suspend its performance under this agreement to the extent required by laws applicable to either party. Additionally, you represent and warrant that you are not the subject or target of, and that you are not located in a country or territory that is the subject or target of economic sanctions of the United States, including, without limitation, North Korea, Cuba, Iran, Syria, and Crimea.

Force Majeure. Neither party shall be liable to the other for the delay or failure to perform any of its obligations (other than for the payment of fees) caused by Force Majeure. If such delay or failure lasts longer than thirty (30) days, then the other party may immediately terminate, in whole or in part, the relevant order by giving written notice to the delayed party. “Force Majeure” refers to circumstances beyond a party’s reasonable control including, without limitation, acts of God; war; riot; civil commotion; terrorist acts; malicious damage; governmental or regulatory actions; accident; breakdown of plant or machinery; local or national emergency; explosions, fire, natural disasters, severe weather or other catastrophes; epidemics and pandemics; general import, export, customs process problems affecting supplies to CTDI or to you; shortages in materials; failure of a utility service or transport network; embargo, strike, lock out, or other industrial dispute (whether involving CTDI’s workforce or any other party); or default of supplier or subcontractors due to any of the preceding events.

Assignment and Subcontracting. Neither party shall assign, transfer, or novate these Terms and Conditions, any order, or any right or obligation thereunder or delegate any performance without the other party’s prior written consent, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld. Notwithstanding the foregoing: (1) CTDI may use affiliates or other qualified subcontractors to perform its obligations hereunder, provided that the relevant party to the order shall remain responsible for the performance thereof; and (2) either party may assign rights to payments arising under any order without consent of the other party.

No Creation of Relationship. Nothing in these terms and conditions or this engagement creates any relationship between you and CTDI or the manufacturer, including, but not limited to, partnership, joint venture, employer-employee, principal-agent or franchisor-franchisee.

Third Party Rights. There are no third-party beneficiaries to these Terms and Conditions or any order under any laws.

Waiver and Severability. Failure to enforce a provision of these Terms and Conditions will not constitute a waiver of that or any other provision of these Terms and Conditions.
